This motherhood thing … no one ever told me it was the little things that would get my attention … feeling overwhelmed at getting a social security card that I was responsible for … when a baby actually slept like … a baby … that Alex starting to wave would make me so excited (oh yeah, Alex started waving over the weekend … towards himself, but I think it counts.)

I knew that choosing to nurse would involve, at some point, choosing to not nurse anymore … I’m grateful that someone could so beautifully show me the way that will come someday … and for making me cry … I give Amanda, at Tumble Dry, a Perfect Post Award for “Mama doesn’t have anymore, baby“.

For the rest of the January Perfect Post Awards, head over to Suburban Turmoil and Petroville.
